Art and craft is everywhere

Art and craft was happening everywhere in Tatura Children’s Centre three-year-old fun group room last week, according to centre director Sheree Carver.

This three-year-old youngster concentrates on his masterpiece at the Tatura Children’s Centre.

‘‘When children apply paint, glue things together, or pound a lump of clay at TCC they are experimenting with colour, shape and design,’’ she said.

Ms Carver said children were given many opportunities to express their ideas and feelings with art materials such as paint.

She said easel painting enables attending children to view their own creation and those of their friends and to learn the importance of valuing and appreciating differences.

At TCC they believe the process of creating is what is important, not what they actually create.

Ms Carver believes engaging in art experiences benefits all aspects of children’s development.

‘‘Easel painting is assisting our three-year-old children to express their feelings, develop an understanding of cause and effect and assisting them to develop good fine motor skills,’’ she said.

‘‘The purpose of art experiences at TCC is to allow children to explore on their own and to use the colours in their own ways.

TCC fun group room leader Terrianne Miller supports this.

‘‘We want children to learn that their own abilities are valued and we believe providing painting on a regular basis is a great tool to promote children’s learning,’’ she said.

Ms Carver said TCC has vacancies in their three-year-old room, and invited families to visit the centre in Kerferd St, or to phone 5824 1415 for more information.
